Somewhere, you know there's a blog chronicling Alex's ties.

Re: Friday, July 20, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

What a finish! Getting the clue at the end of DJ to make it a game, and then hitting FJ for the win. I was rooting for Andy as a baseball fan, and that was really exciting. Now excuse me while I give my girlfriend a hard time for blurting out the FJ answer before I had a chance to think about it. TP...

I almost went with Sue for FJ but corrected myself at the last minute...anyone else?

I guessed the wrong Charles :(

Guess I should have paid more attention in 10th grade history.

Oh yes - let it be noted that Blythe contradicted Alex in the interview and came away with a big win. Suck it, Jeopardy gods.

Re: Monday, July 16, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

As for FJ, I thought that the question was a little misleading - I knew immediately it was "muckraking," but there was nothing in the clue outside of TR to lead you to that, and it led the contestants to "bully." At least bully implies some kind of violence - why mention the guy getting shot? Cheap...

Don't know how many of you are on Twitter, but Laura found my tweets about her (along with those from a lot of other people) and was retweeting them to her followers yesterday. I sent her a link to the this place; we'll see if she follows up.

Speaking of clues, am I losing it, or did one of those Thai clues mention mouse droppings? NO, you heard correct. Memo from the J board: Thanks a lot for not picking me in ELECTION YEAR BEFORE & AFTER: Sincerely, Michele Bachman Turner Overdrive Hmm wasn't there one unrevealed clue in the category?

Re: Thursday, July 12, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

That game was tons of fun, and not just because I only missed 7 questions or so the whole time. I'm mad that I couldn't come up with FJ, but now I'll never forget the UN's official languages. Laura, wow, big bet almost paid off. Glad you could make it exciting and keep it from being a stomping. How ...

Re: Wednesday, July 11, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I haven't had a game that good in a long time. I was 90% sure about Lincoln, enough to count it as a get for me. Pretty sure I got at least 3-4 in every category, no "Medical Talk" or "Opera" here, thank the lord.

Did Alex seem to be a particularly jolly mood to anyone else?

Anyone else go for Lee Iacocca on FJ?

I did really well this time around, lots of gimmes. The only one I was mad about missing was Berry Gordy. Jennifer...well, as was discussed in yesterday's thread, you have to be good to ge there in the first place, but that was rough to watch.

Re: Monday, July 2, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

For the George Harrison Clue, why would they make reference to a Paul song? That makes no sense and it threw me off. Because George sang lead on "Something." IIRC they also referenced "I've Just Seen a Face" in the clue, which is a McCartney number. It was "I Saw Her Standing There" but yeah
